Well sure you can run explorer but you should be aware that this
dainbread program likes to trash the windows system directory. The
reason for this is seems to be related to missing entries in the
registry files. There is a fixup program that might repair the damage
(it usualy does). I don't care about my windows install. The only time
I use it is to test a programs behavior under windows. Anyway debugging
this behavior has been a PITA and I personally have made little headway
when I have tried to debug it. By the same token it would be nice not
to have it do the damage it does.
Apparently you can get this corruption even if you dont run explorer
directly since some programs (like msn) will call explorer.exe.
FWIW This is in the README.
